these are all good!

Yes, and I love the snail kissing the other snail too!

i love the snails too.

(they looked happier to me than the photo from the article!)

The snails do look happy to be together!

1. Your relationships are less dramatic than they used to be.

Drama is not maturity. As we age, we should develop maturity. So maybe your relationships were drama-filled in your past, but if you have moved beyond that, then you are successful.

It's true that as we get older, we get more comfortable severing ties with people who take our energy.

8. You don’t complain much.

Because you know there really is nothing to complain about. Unless you really have gone through some horrific life experience and had unimaginable losses, most of what we all experience on a day-to-day basis is just mundane. And successful people know that. And they live in a space of gratitude.

That's really well said.

so well said!

I can't remember when it was that I stopped complaining, but I'm happy that I did.

It gives me a lot more energy for other better things. 

yes!  like gratitude.  :)

If I complain less, I have more energy for gratitude, which makes me want to complain less.

Disappointments = Learning Opportunities

17. You always look on the bright side.

Life can be full of disappointments – if you choose to see them that way. Otherwise, they are learning opportunities. No negative experience is ever wasted as long as you learn from it.

18. You accept what you can’t change.

Let’s face it – there many things you can’t change in life. All you can change is how you view what happens. If you can change your negative perspective on situations to a positive one, then you are successful.

19. You change what you can.

And let’s face it again – there are many things you can change in life. Successful people don’t sit around accepting the negatives that are changeable. They get out there and do something about it!!

#17 is very Monty Python:

Change what you can, accept what you can't change, and learn whenever you can.

hahahahahahaha!!!  LOVE this scene!

"when you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble! give a whistle!"

Great rock band name!

But in my mind "learning opportunities" always has air quotes of euphemism.

Air Quotes of Euphemism would be a great band name, except... Hardly anyone can spell Euphemism.

too bad, too, because it's such a great word!

that's pretty darn fun.

Surprisingly fun and I've never gotten a repeat euphemism.
